Lauren LeBlanc is Aurelia's first and final point of contact for placing Canadian teachers in the UK. Born in Niagara, she completed her education at Nipissing University, obtaining her Bachelor of Arts Honours in Philosophy and her Bachelor of Education in the Primary/Junior Division. After graduating in 2013, Lauren decided to move to England to teach in the Cambridgeshire region as a Year 4 teacher.
In her second year of teaching, Lauren moved North from Cambridgeshire to Yorkshire joining Aurelia, in it's first year as a company. Along with her dogs, Spot and Toffee, she moved to Bradford and taught Year 1. With a year of experience in the UK already, Lauren supported Julie in welcoming, training and transitioning first year teachers as they joined the Aurelia community.
At the end of her second year, Lauren was asked by Julie to remain a part of the Aurelia community by speaking to teachers across Canada who may be interested in teaching overseas. Her current role is supporting teachers in all steps of the process, helping them find the right fit and placement for full time work in England through bespoke care. From first meeting you at your university to being with you in England, Lauren will be with you throughout the process-- you may even get to meet the pups along the way!
